Folding frame / buck sawhiking version part III. Last part of the blog, ended here, with the basic saw made.In this part, we will make the hardware and some leather details. To hold the blade, I threaded the wood, with a tap, so it can hold a bolt.(The blade can be held in many ways, I’ll show an alternative later).
